“The team and coaching staff would like to extend Hannah a huge congratulations for reaching the milestone of scoring 1,000 career points,” said head coach Jaquelin Hotaling. “Even more special is the fact that she is only the third girl in RCS history to accomplish this amazing achievement!

We are grateful that Hannah brings her talent and leadership to our team at RCS.”
